In this episode, host John MacGregor dives into what is described as the greatest retirement crisis in history, with a focus on the systemic issues plaguing the United States pension system.

A distinguished panel comprising experts in financial forensics, educators, and leaders from the Ohio Retirement for Teachers Association discuss the deep-rooted problems within the pension system, particularly highlighting mismanagement, lack of transparency, and the chasing of high-risk investments by pension funds as central to the crisis.

With a series of guest experiences and expert analyses, including a spotlight on the teachers’ pension crisis in Minnesota and the broader implications for the US economy and taxpayers, the episode underscores the urgent need for transparency, accurate management, and the fulfillment of pension promises.

Ted Siedle, renowned for the largest whistleblower awards in history and co-authoring ‘Who Stole My Pension?’ with Robert Kiyosaki, sheds light on the opaque and mismanaged financial practices eroding the foundation of pension systems.
